Lucas Hedding is skilled in all things technology.  From the late 90's working in an IT helpdesk, all through his time at several large and medium sized corporation, he's been adding to his skills.  Other technical aspects to Lucas are his knowledge of identity and access management, programming in Java, Perl, PHP, C and Korn shell or his strong business accumen from many years working in Corporate America.  One of his proudest moments was finding a bug in WebSphere's implementation of LDAP connectivity -- which IBM promptly fixed.

Lucas joined the Drupal community over lunch with a fellow IT professional in 2011 at a Thai resturant and has been hooked ever since.  He currently co-maintains several modules and is a core maintainer for the Migrate system in Drupal 8. He moved to Nicaragua in the fall of 2014 to grow the Drupal community in that country and provide job opportunities to nationals working with Drupal.

Lucas enjoys spending time with his wife Melissa and their growing family.  Many evenings you will find him at the local "Casa de Cultura" watching his kids practice Taekwondo or ballet.  He also enjoys reading Louis L'Amour, the Bible and classic poetry.
